Knowing when an export or reexport license is required under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) is critical to ensuring your company’s compliance with U.S. export controls and quite frankly, staying out of trouble. However, knowing how and when to use an available license exception under Part 740 of the EAR can be worth its weight in gold in terms of expediting the delivery of your products to non-U.S. customers. There are currently 18 license exceptions available under the EAR that enable companies to export faster and avoid wasting time and already strained resources on needlessly applying (and waiting) for licenses.

In this series of two webinars we will give attendees situational and transactional exercises to work on prior to both webinars. During the webinars we will use a combination of instruction and discussion of the exercises for a “practice makes perfect” approach to learning how to correctly utilize available EAR license exceptions.

In addition to the exercises, the instruction will cover these points:

  • Commonly-used license exceptions including:
    • Shipments of Limited Value (LVS)
    • Country Group B Shipments (GBS)
    • Civil End-Users (CIV)
    • Temporary Exports (TMP)
    • Servicing and Replacement of Parts and Equipment (RPL)
    • Government Shipments (GOV)
    • Aircraft (AVS)
    • Encryption Commodities, Software, and Technology (ENC)
    • Agricultural Commodities (AGR)
    • Consumer Communications Devices (CCD)
    • Strategic Trade Authorization (STA)
    • Support for the Cuban People (SCP)
  • Understanding when license exceptions can NEVER be used
  • Implementing effective internal procedures for utilizing license exceptions

This combination of hands-on exercises, expert instruction, and participation in real-time question and answer sessions will be a unique opportunity to enhance your understanding of EAR license exceptions.

These webinars will provide PowerPoint slides and notes and include video and commentary from Melissa Proctor, who has spent more than 20 years making the complex export and import rules understandable and workable for companies of all sizes. She has assisted Fortune 500 companies, small and medium-sized companies, and startups in designing tailored strategies and effective solutions for complicated international trade issues.

“The Export Compliance Training Institute EAR Exception Webinar was a fantastic learning experience and I would recommend it to everyone. It provided a lot of very informative and useful knowledge that will help me greatly in continuing to improve our Export Compliance Program and reduce lead times due to Export Licenses.”
